“We could be close to a resolution. I have seen all the proposals that have ever been produced by the mediators. I can assure you we have never been this close,” Oskanian said.
He told the Permanent Council, the 56-country Organization’s main decision-making body, that the proposal now under consideration was well-balanced.
“This gives something to everyone and denies every maximalist demand the sides might have. It is a balanced approach, and we hope we will be able to continue to make progress on the basis of this document,” he said.
Oskanian also discussed Armenia’s 12 May parliamentary elections, saying the country was committed to ensure they would be free and fair.
"This is a huge test for Armenia’s democracy, and I firmly believe that we together - the government, the opposition, the public and the OSCE - we together can indeed hold a normal election that will greatly contribute to Armenia’s further democratization processes," he said. /APA/
